I’ve been writing for many years now. Apart from my childhood and teenage writings, it all started again ten years ago. Inspired by theatre and bringing words to life, I began writing for stage. That inspiration soon developed into a love of novel and screenplay writing.


I’ve had two separate productions of my plays, one at The Etcetera Theatre in Camden, and another that I personally directed, shown at The Norbury Theatre, in Droitwich Spa. My feature film, Penny for the Guy is in its final stages of production and will be completed by the end of 2020.

I began my novel writing career with a ghost story aimed at teenagers, called Flame. Since then, I’ve well and truly contracted the novel writing bug. I followed that novel with psychological thriller, To Let.

My most popular novel was my Turkey based holiday crime thriller, Whispers Beneath the Pines, that was until DI Gina Harte was created.

Through the years, my love of horror also developed into a love of crime thriller and drama. I will confess to having a romantic comedy in me. I took a little time out to write novella, Meet me at Marmaris Castle.

I’m still absolutely bowled over by the fact that Bookouture offered me a publishing deal. I now introduce you to my most ambitious and popular books to date, the Detective Inspector Gina Harte series.

The first book is called The Next Girl. This was soon followed by Her Final Hour and then Her Pretty Bones. This led to a further 3 book deal, again with Bookouture, resulting to date in the releases of The Liar’s House and Her Dark Heart. Book 6 in the series is in its final stages of editing before an April release, and on top of that, I’ve had yet another book deal – this time for a further 4 books!

So far, Gina Harte has been number one in various countries in iBooks and Amazon, of which I’m thrilled! If you’d like to know more, please click on my DI Gina Harte page. 

I have also more recently re-connected with my love of drawing and painting, so please check out my Carla Kovach Art page too.

I hope you enjoy my work and my website. Have a browse and I’d love to hear from you. Feel free to connect with me via my Facebook page, blog page or on Twitter.
